At age 88, actor and director Clint Eastwood has more life experience than nearly anyone else in Hollywood. Professionally and personally, he may very well have seen it all. However, the Dirty Harry star has now revealed – for the very first time – an incredibly personal and heartbreaking story about an event that happened to him over 60 years ago. And the revelation may make you see Eastwood in an entirely different light.
Very few actors can lay claim to the same overwhelming success that Clint Eastwood has attained over the years. Born in San Francisco, California, on May 31, 1930, the veteran performer has been on our screens for six decades now – and he shows no signs of slowing down.
Eastwood first made a splash in 1958 as Rowdy Yates in the television Western Rawhide. And since then, he has gone on to become arguably one of the most well-respected figures in the industry. The star’s reputation largely rests on his imperious performances in movies such as The Good, the Bad and the Ugly, Pale Rider and Dirty Harry.
